The Lion King

Our little family had the opportunity to go see "The Lion King."

I didn't tell the kidlets what was going on, they just new that we were going somewhere that they had to dress nice. I even parked in the parking garage without them figuring it out!

It wasn't until we rounded the corner and Piper saw the Marquee that it clicked.

It was a matinee so we met Aaron out there.

We had fantastic seats! Center section on the floor about half-way back.

The kidlets were excited...SO excited.

The opening number set the mood.
Watching Piper and Teague watch the show brought tears to my eyes...literally...When Teague leaned over to Aaron and said, "I think this is going to be the best show I've ever seen!" I knew it was going to be a day to remember.

I'm SO glad that we were able to see it as a family. It was not my favorite show, but costumes, lights, sound and set were amazing and so were the actors...that would be a hard show to do.

Even though it wasn't my favorite show, it will always be one of my favorite memories with my family.

I saw that one when I was in London and I actually REALLY liked it. I guess the plot isn't my FAVORITE, but the STAGING!! ACK! I'm so glad you got to see it as a family :)

lol...that's awesome.

I kept debating buying tickets for the whole fam but we finally decided to "stay on budget" and save the big scale production for another time. Meanwhile, we're stoked to take them to a show or two this year at our local theatre (Roger's Memorial) or a high school play (just heard that Viewmont is doing Pimpernel this year)

So cool that you got to take the whole fam! Someday ... when my kids are a little older ... and I'm a little richer! :) It wasn't my favorite either, but I loved the costumes1
